SigLA is an interactive database of inscriptions written in the (still undeciphered) Linear A script of Bronze Age Greece. SigLA aim at developing a systematic, exhaustive and user-friendly open access database of all Linear A inscriptions. Such a research tool is currently missing, and is essential in order to carry out statistical and palæographic analyses within the epigraphic corpus, only available in print form at the moment.
